I'm interested in March holiday spring break... can you clarify what you mean by "summer or holiday week"? Perhaps list the dates available for 2020? thanks.

Peak Season for 2020 is 7, 15, 22-38, 47, 51-52.
High Season for 2020 is 1-6, 8-14, 16-21, 39-46, 48-50.

I assume that SHG's 2 BR is Peak, based on what was shared in the post.

At Riviera Beach & Spa Resort, there are 2BR non-ocean and 2BR ocean view.

Thanks gratiem!! I was looking for that information.

Yes, I have Peak Season. This means it includes holidays and the summer season. This also means it does not specifically include spring break unless your spring break is the actual Easter week (week 15).

Sorry goaliedave, I have Peak Season, which means for 2020 the weeks are 7, 15, 22-38, 47, 51-52. It does not include week 12.... But, now that you bring it up, I have never tried to reserve outside of my time, because that is a lower season. I will call the resort and see if that is possible...

Yes, I did call and verify that you can only book in the designated windows. So you cannot book in the lower seasons. Thanks for the reminder in getting this answer.

Also, is this ocean or non ocean view?
Maintenance fee for 2018 was 898.92. This week was used already. If you are interested in making a 2019 or 2020 reservation, you will have to pay the maintenance fees.
This ownership is for a 1 bedroom ocean view OR a 2 bedroom non-ocean view. Reservations are during Prime season, summer and holidays.

2019 summer is almost over. Does it mean 2019 MF has not been biilled or paid since most resorts bill it at year end the year before?

I'm sorry, let me try to explain more clearly.
  • Billings occur in December. So the 2019 year was billed and paid in December of 2018.
  • The 2019 week has been used, so there is no opportunity for use in 2019.
  • In order for a summer week use in 2020, it is highly desirable to make that request as soon as possible. We always make the request 1 year in advance. So, that would be now for 2020. To make this request would then require paying the 2020 fees in advance of the billing, which would normally occur this December.
I hope this clarified. Please feel free if you have further questions....
